In one of her snaps the 25-year-old strikes a sultry pose while adorned in a generously sized knitwear sweater, while in another she is in the same outfit, but with the letter 'x' penned over her eyes.

However the Wizards Of Waverly Place star made sure she went out on a cheerful note, sharing a snap of her wearing Minnie Mouse ears, which she joked she 'stole from my sister.'

It comes after The Weeknd deleted every single Instagram post that featured his former lover, which itself came in the wake of the couple unfollowing each other on social media - quite the statement of intent in these heady times.

The 27-year-old singer recently split from the popstrel after 10 months of dating, and decided to remove any trace of his ex-girlfriend from his page on the photo-sharing website.

Whispers of a reunion between the former couple were sparked after the Star Boy hitmaker was spotted sneaking out of the statuesque model's NYC apartment back on November 14.

Following Bella's knockout runway turn during this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai, China, the model reportedly received a 'gorgeous, huge bouquet of flowers along with a super sweet note' from The Weeknd.?

Though the pair appear to be talking again, the The Hills hitmaker might be interested in playing the field.

Abel was seen getting dinner with pop star Katy Perry in West Hollywood last Tuesday.

While it was unclear if the meet up was platonic or something more, some insiders suspected the dinner was the Swish Swish singer's way of 'getting back' at Selena for the time she was caught cozying up with Perry's ex Orlando Bloom over a year ago.

'Katy has a long memory and she never forgets,' the source told The Sun.

'She didn't like that everyone thought Orlando had cheated on her with Selena in Vegas that time - even though Orlando and Selena said they were just friends, it was very embarrassing for her.

'Katy is not doing anything wrong right now - Selena has moved on from [The Weeknd] with Justin [Bieber] but I think she'll love the idea that Selena will be shocked when she sees Katy and her ex out together.

'If she does get upset, it'll be payback for how Katy felt after THOSE Vegas pictures. As Taylor Swift knows, Katy doesn't forget people who've made her look bad, and she thinks revenge is a dish best served cold.'

Selena and Justin have been nearly inseparable as they try to pick up their relationship.

The Purpose singer 'loves how supportive Selena has been of his new healthy lifestyle,' an insider told HollywoodLife?on Sunday, adding that: 'Selena brings out the best in Justin.'

Selena and the pop star, 23, began dating in 2010, and the two had an on and off relationship before ending it for good in 2014.
